Track Name: Twin Lakes
In our secret dark place between Twin Lakes
When I told you I wish you’d seen the look on your face
It’s a lot to take in my friend, but we’ll be fine
As I touched your hair, I tried to explain
That the darkness inside no longer causes me pain
The choices I’ve made have not always been mine

Carve your name in the wood and feel no shame
This place where you lay will one day mark your grave
We became something no good and I’m to blame
When white turns to grey and then to black it can’t be saved

There’s a part of this that’s wrong but it ain’t no thing
Just creates another moment for me to sing
It’s hard to go back when the black consumes your mind
It’s not hard to reminisce when I feel like this
But the past is pulling at me, I don’t wanna resist
I’ll become tomorrow what they wanted then in no time.

Carve your name in the wood and feel no shame
This place where you lay will one day mark your grave
We became something no good and I’m to blame
When white turns to grey and then to black it can’t be saved
Track Name: Your Own Private Landfill
The trash is taking over
It's spreading from its pile
When the paramedics get here
They’ll move single-file
A heap of dirty laundry
Dishes that smell vile
For them to find your body
It just might take a while

Collection of possessions
You've had since you were five
It's your own private landfill
To throw away your life
Buried under the mess that you’ve made
Scary blunder, but now it’s too late

A decade’s worth of junk mail
Strewn across the floor
A box of broken light bulbs
What do you need that for?
Souvenirs from Seattle
You went back in ‘94
Brought back a nasty habit
Forgot how to do your chores

Collection of possessions
You've had since you were five
It's your own private landfill
To throw away your life
Buried under the mess that you’ve made
Scary blunder, but now it’s too late

WHEN YOU DIE THEY'LL GO THROUGH YOUR ROOM
Track Name: The Purple Church
Beyond tall oaks in some old wood
Who’s limbs reach out and lash
Where once the Sacred Heart had stood
Now lies a mount of ash
Inside the hearth where fires burn
Invoking waves of sleep
Enter the gates and you will learn
The secrets of the deep

SAVE ME THIS TIME - SAVE ME TONIGHT

Upon the back of a white horse
Our mystic starts her ride
Traversing through this moonlit course
This places mysteries hide
With blood upon her daggers blade
And runes upon the floor
Adorned with mixtures she has made
When darkness asks for more

SAVE ME THIS TIME - SAVE ME TONIGHT
